Organizations Filed Purposes: The Mustang Heritage Foundation works to ensure the successful private placement of excess wild horses and burros removed from public lands so future generations can enjoy this distinctive feature of our American heritage.The primary mission of the Mustang Heritage Foundation is to create, promote, support and manage programs and activities that:- provide information and education to the public about wild horses and burros;- elevate the public image and desirability of wild horses and burros;- provide opportunities for members of the public to become involved in the wild horse and burro experience;- secure adequate numbers of skilled and caring private homes for excess horses to ensure healthy wild herds and rangelands through the placement of excess animals removed from public lands; and- identify and develop sources of private financial support for the Foundation's mission.

The Mustang Heritage Foundation created the Extreme Mustang Makeovers (EMM ) and other wild horse events to showcase the trainability and versatility of wild horses. Experienced horse trainers pick up a wild horse, train the horse for 100 days and then compete for event incentives at an EMM event. The trained mustangs are then available for purchase or adoption through a public auction. There were 2 EMM events produced in 2019 that included 6 days of competition, 2 placement auctions, had over 7,000 event spectators. 132 horses were placed in to private care through these events. Without a program like the EMM older less colorful animals would be moved to long term government care costing taxpayers approximately $50,000 per animal over that animal's lifetime.

In 2018-2019 over 2,400 mustangs and burros were placed through the Trainer Incentive Program. Approved trainers pick up wild horses or burros and gentle them to minimum gentling requirements. Upon gentling, trainers solicit qualified adopters or purchasers and received financial incentives for each horse or burro successfully placed in to private care. Without a program for placement like TIP these animals would typically move to Bureau of Land Management long term care facilities, costing taxpayers approximately $50,000 per animal over that animal's lifetime.

In 2015 the Americas Mustang campaign was developed and implemented. The campaign was aimed at increasing mustang awareness throughout the United States through market, an educational website, social media presence and hands-on learning opportunities. Over 35 events have been held in 14 sates including off-range pasture and corral tours, ecosanctuary tours, equine expo appearances. In 2016 an interactive virtual reality trailer was created. The VR experience travelled the country attending various events and expos educating the general public on the current on-range and off-range wild horse and burros situation, circumstances and statistics.
